Create Hex Grid

Hex grids can be specified with a required size and boundary for the area of interest.  You can then specify that data in a map panel is grouped by the hex grid.

Hex grids are defined in Administration:

  1. Select Administration and then Monitoring
  2. Select “Show as Map”
  3. Press the “Create Grid” button.
